"The 2020er Schmetterling (butterfly in German), as it is simply referred to on the consumer label, with lot number MF 001 2021 is a bone-dry blend of Müller-Thurgau, Kerner, and Riesling grapes fermented without intervention in a mix of tank and oak and bottled unfiltered and without any sulfur added. It offers a beautifully fruity and spicy nose with only a hint of funk and greets one with superbly tart flavors of spices, herbs, and citrusy fruits packed into riper elements of quince on the palate. The finish is juicy, fruity, remarkably playful, and airy. This is a gorgeous wine which clearly kicks far above the humble levels of a “simple summer wine. Now-2024."
